Well friends, today it's all about snack food, and my latest snacking addiction. These Roasted Honey Dijon Pecans are so addicting! A little sweet, a little spice, and a lot of crunch! Oh yum!
And we'll get to the recipe in a second...
First I want to give you a little update on my life because it feels like it's been a while since I did that (and I know that you all care very deeply).
I am actually writing this post from Kelowna, BC where I am staying for a month for an elective. Well that's a lie. I am actually staying in Coldstream at my parents' place, but no one knows where that is so let's just call it Kelowna. It's gorgeous out here. Beautiful blue lakes, sunny skies and summer temperatures (well most of the time). There is already fresh produce growing in the garden! It's amazing. I have been snacking on fresh strawberries and I am just about to head out to pick a crazy amount of fresh basil for a pesto recipe I am working on. So keep your eyes peeled for that in the coming weeks! Because there is nothing better than food made with seasonal ingredients. Right? Right!
Can you believe I am almost finished residency? I have only five weeks left! Isn't that crazy? It doesn't feel real. I have been in post secondary education for the last 13 years of my life. Man that's a long time. I honestly can't wait to be done. Although it is also a terrifying thought to start working independently as well. So many mixed emotions. I just have to get through my rheumatology exams in the fall and then I will never have to write another exam again! Amazing right? To celebrate Erik and I are planning a trip in October. We are thinking about going to Bali but we are open to suggestions so if you have any please let me know! If I had my choice I would love to take a year off and just travel, and blog. Unfortunately, going that long without an income would be just a little challenging. So unless this little blog starts making me some decent money soon that will just remain a dream. An amazing sounding one if you ask me though.
So let's talk about these Roasted Honey Dijon Pecans. Because they are delicious! These did not last long the first time I made them that's for sure. Erik and I inhaled them. Literally inhaled. It can be challenging to find healthy snacks while on the Paleo diet so these are a great option to have on hand. They are super simple to make, only require 5 ingredients and have an amazing flavour. I personally love anything with a great crunchy texture and these definitely have that. Sweet, flavourful and crunchy. Three things that make a great snack if you ask me. If your will power is better than mine you can store these in the fridge for weeks and they will still taste great. I hope you like them!
Until next time, happy eating friends!
